- Orthodontics and prosthodontics - a powerful interdisciplinary partnership
- The main reason for a collaboration between orthodontic and restorative dentistry is the well known fact, that orthodontics can move teeth, but cannot change the shape of teeth. In contrary restorative dentistry or prosthodontics can change the shape and the color of teeth, but is unable to move teeth to the right position.
But how is the general algorithm in the interdisciplinary approach, to get a success- and powerful partnership?
This lecture shows effective procedures of interactive diagnosis, planning and treatment in typical patient-situations, where interdisciplinary treatment is needed, with focus on function and to the digital state of the art.
- ＜Fundamentals of interdisciplinary cooperation betweenorthodontics and restorative dentistry with special attention to the function＞
- The dentistry has direct influence on the temporomandibular joint function and on the neuromuscular system by changing the occlusion. The temporomandibular joints, masticatory muscles and the teeth have a not to be underestimated impact onto the entire organism. This relationship is complex and multilayered, and described in detail in various studies.
For the planning of a complex interdisciplinary treatment the speakers will give a well-defined schedule as a prerequisite for successful treatment. The algorithm of this sequence is shown in detail and described in various different treatment strategies.
Objective of dentistry in this context is the occlusal therapy, which often requires interaction of orthodontics and restorative dentistry. The realization in the dental practice today takes place for the most part in a digital workflow. The virtual orthodontic treatment planning (ClinCheck Software) and the current possibilities of CAD / CAM technology in the functional therapeutic and restorative dentistry will also be presented in various treatment examples.
